Hi, everyone.
I am honored to be part of such an elite group.
I am in the beginnings of restoring a 1966 Ishapore 7.62 in the No 1 MK III genre.
I am seeking a service manual.
I know the knowledge here is extensive, but I am wanting to attack this as my project, first, but need some detailed info.
Thank you.

Welcome. I have never seen a manual on the Ishapore 2A's or 2A1's but it would be nice to find one floating around out there. When it comes to disassembly and assembly the No 1 Mk III information helps out on these. Whatever detailed info you have questions about just ask away.

Howdy from Phoenix Arizona. 
If and when you decide you are going to disassemble the wood/furniture, whether or not it is cutdown or complete,  remove the forestock BEFORE you remove the buttstock. The buttstock bolt protrudes through the buttsocket wrist and can touch the forestock.  If you attempt to unscrew the buttstock bolt first, you could damage the forestock.
Sharing photos of your 2A/2A1 can always assist us in assisting you with any questions you might have...

welcome , photos would be nice - we can give you much more then , 

sounds like you have need of the skennerton small arms identification (SAIS) #1 - it relates to the SMLE mkIII&III* series this would get you basic info , its an 8x11 soft cover that used to be about $10 ,

I have a .PDF of completely dismantling a British SMLE No1 MkIII* if thats any help.
They are very similar, but not identical, because of the caliber change, but it should be a big help.
Its too large to post here at 2382Kb & 53 pages, but I can e-mail it to you if your e-mail a/c will accept PDF's of that size.
PM me if interested.

Thank you, so much, everyone. I really appreciate it.  I am definitely finding machining and tolerance differences between the SMLE No 1 MK III and the Ishapore 7.62.
It's a great challenge.
